Robbins & Curtin’s Legal Assistants coordinate most aspects of the day at the office for the attorneys. Each legal assistant’s job encompasses making appointments, scheduling depositions, docketing court events, calendaring deadlines, requesting records, transcribing recorded dictation, filing court documents, and drafting correspondence, discovery and disclosure documents and pleadings. Our legal assistants are also a client’s liaison to the attorneys; they are in frequent contact with clients to keep them apprised of the case status, and to answer questions or get answers from other sources.
Our Paralegals are responsible for obtaining background records and documents, and for assisting with discovery in cases. A paralegal will assist clients in completing interrogatories, requests to produce and requests to admit. Our paralegals assist in conducting interviews and coordinating investigations, and also provide expert witnesses with the materials that they need to give adequate opinions concerning each case. Additionally, they will often assist with trials.
Our File Clerks are responsible for scanning and organizing all of the files for the firm, as well as assisting other staff members with photocopying, filing, scanning, mailing, paralegal projects, document delivery and retrieval, client intake, and accompanying clients to Independent Medical Exams (IMEs).
Our Bookkeeper handles accounts payable and receivable for the firm.
Our Receptionist opens the office, greets and directs clients and guests, manages incoming calls, handles faxes and mail, orders supplies, and performs a variety of other tasks that keep Robbins & Curtin running smoothly.
Our Office Manager serves at the discretion of the attorneys to resolve problems and perform supporting functions so that the legal team can focus on case work. This includes: serving as the liaison between the staff and the IT services provider, coordinating software and hardware purchases and installations, managing vendor relations, maintaining legal subscriptions and memberships, participating in employee recruiting and benefits evaluation, updating website content, and planning and overseeing office events.
